There’s some serious jiving going on at Toby’s Dinner Theater. No need to dress up too much- just grab your rosary and hymnal, and head out the door to Sister Act. It’s— yes, yes, wait for it- paradise.

Who knew nuns could be so much fun? In “Sister Act,” currently playing at Toby’s Columbia, nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier shows an order of nuns that there’s more to life than penance and genuflection.

Review: ‘Sister Act’ at Toby’s The Dinner Theatre of Columbia by John Harding at DC Metro Theater Arts
Nuns are more fun in the round. That’s a catechism we learned at Toby’s Dinner Theatre via Nunsense and other shows so many times it became an article of faith. Now Toby’s is up to its wimples in old habits with Sister Act, and it is guaranteed to turn every last “doubting Thomas” out there into a true believer.
